School of Choice Applications available

Several local school districts, including Marquette Area Public Schools, announce Schools of Choice openings for 2nd semester 2011-12. In the MAPS district, applications may be obtained at any MAPS school building, and will be accepted through Friday, January 20, 2012. 

The district will make every effort to accommodate building preference at the elementary level, but retains the right to make the final building selection for student placement.  Enrollment deadline for students accepted under the Schools of Choice program is Friday, January 27, 2012.  

According to Section 105 of the State Aid Act, students must reside within the Marquette-Alger RESA to be eligible for Schools of Choice at MAPS.
